  • 1.  VMware converter SSL Verification

    Posted Sep 19, 2019 11:58 PM


    may anyone have/had same issue.

    i had 6.0 U3 latest vcenter and hosts.

    and i converted some vm's from Hyper-V to Vmware Side.

    i then upgraded vcenter to 6.7 U3.

    since then i'am not able to convert anymore.

    --> (converter.fault.CloneFault) {

    -->    faultCause = (vmodl.MethodFault) null,

    -->    description = "converter.fault.SSLVerificationFault",

    -->    msg = ""

    --> }

    i tried

    - Re/installed Agent on Client Side

    - Re/installed Converter on Server

    i don't understand why that SSLVerificationFault happens.    i also tried to convert directly to esxi 6.0.   getting kinda user/password error.  but user and pass is right.

    only working way in moment is to convert through UNC path and then to import to vCenter. 

    any thoughts what that could be and how to solve it?   as Converter seems long time not maintained.

    Without logs it's hard to check what happens but as wild guess - you can try to use services with new certificates but you remember old hashes, check and cleanup registry at "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VMware\Virtual Infrastructure Client\Preferences\UI\SSLIgnore". [edited]

    Standalone Converter is not compatible with 6.7U3, you have to go back to 6.5U1
